Today's update from the SFA following the Holyrood announcement. i.e. we haven't a clue. 

 

Response to Scottish Government road map out of lockdown

The Joint Response Group notes the First Minister’s road map out of lockdown outlined at Holyrood today.

We await further clarification from ministers in the coming days on the implications for Scottish football at all levels, including leagues and clubs currently under the Scottish FA suspension and the wider grassroots game.

We will provide a more detailed update when ministers outline the road map for affected areas of Scottish football.

The JRG is committed to working with government to ensure the national game is primed to return within the ‘progressive easing’ timeline announced today. 

Is football training for kids allowed just now? I was surprised to see a well known youth team training on Sunday morning.

Yeh it makes sense what they're doing but Dobbies and B&Q either is, or isn't, essential though. They're expanding essential to include some non-essentials that they've chosen. I'm not digging them out as I agree with the move, just feel it highlights that it's very much selected retailer(s) rather than whether they actually are essential or not. There's not much that Dobbies sells that's remotely essential and any essential stuff you can get at B&Q will still be on sale at a merchant just now anyway.


This has annoyed me too. Meanwhile supermarkets can just sell whatever they want and hoover up huge chunks of income from small independents.

 

Meanwhile small independents get shafted for rents left right and centre while unable to trade.

Don’t want to answer another posters question but.....

 

One of the most likely initial modelling scenarios was 80% of U.K. population would  get it and gave a 1% mortality rate. Would be about 520k deaths. It’s maybe a bit generous with the rounding but the scenario was what was used right at the outset. 
 

I remember Witty talking about a health committee early doors.

 

 

thanks

 

that looks like it assumes a uniform mortality rate which I don’t think has been proven to be the case 

 

surprised it would be used as any sort of estimate now but maybe it is

I had the AZ one and had a headache, relieved with paracetamol and felt clammy for some of the next day. Don’t laugh, but at first I convinced myself I had caught Covid prior to getting the vaccine and that was why I was feeling ropey. Felt like a bit of a cock when I felt better later in the day 😀


Good that it was just after effects and not Covid. Same thing happens with the flu-jag, folk often think it gave them flu. 

I got the Pfizer, arm feels like it's been punched a few times, apart from that pretty good. Set-up at the centre I went to was decent, you end up in one of a couple rows of observation pods after the jag to be observed for adverse reactions. 15 minutes and you can go.

She's progressed from freeing the perkies to flashing her nicks, so a 'friend' tells me. She's on the bill for the retro festival in Dalkeith in June, which was postponed from last year. Hard to know whether it will go ahead since our route out of lockdown is a tad vague.

New state run bars will open from July, just as soon as she can decimate the remaining pubs. Vouchers will be issued to all citizens and discount schemes will operate for those who have never done a day's work in their life. That's the "progressive" plan.


So her cunning plan all along was to supplant the odd-ball who runs Wetherspoons, aye? 

Get help.

It’s like all modelling, a scenario and little more. 1% is just averaging the mortality rates across the age groups. So as scenarios go it’s up there with Gov Tarkins instructions 🤷🏻‍♂️

Not sure where you're based but in our street we've had houses with tradesman working in them for months....we've got painters confirmed coming in for our ceilings next week....so not really seeing tradesman work being curtailed?

It’s against the law to have non-essential work done....so they are breaking the law

I am guessing that BJ was probably under pressure from his back bencher's and the bigger business groups to put dates into his road map on the basis they would argue strongly that planning is required for the economic path.  The problem now is that BJ has dates but every time you turn on the telly folk chatting down south seem to be working to these dates not using them as possible's or as a from date.  I understand business needs to plan, folk are weary and so on but this could really bite BJ's bum big time if he has to pull back and revert to a even more cautious approach.  I also understand that optimism is a good thing and BJ is trying to give people hope.  I get where he is at.  

 

Up here all I know is it is historic, in our DNA and we do not seem to be such an optimistic bunch, more doom and gloom and glass half full types.  And I include myself in that at times, perhaps it is how we have been educated and/or brought up.  NS does not do optimism and that style obviously appeals to the masses or I honestly do not believe she would continue with that.  Today's announcements, and the way they were delivered were, for me part of the plan to get the people to put the crosses in the right boxes in May.  

 

Time will tell how this all pans out but I am off to Garve on a walking holiday on 6th June come hell or high water :)

 

 

 

 

I think the cautious approach that appeals to the masses was on message for 2020 when things were so uncertain.  I strongly believe she has misjudged it this time.

 

Just imagine a scenario where the data allows pub beer gardens to open in England on 12th April.  Imagine also the hospitalisations and deaths keep dropping at the rate they are.   
 

We could be in a situation in Scotland where we have weeks of watching England enjoying outdoor hospitality in the spring sunshine where we are still mostly locked down despite hospitalisations being right down and despite Scotland having lower prevalence of the virus.  

 

Of course there will always be some of the SNP faithful who will back NS’s cautious approach come what may.  But I believe for the vast majority, particularly given how many will have been vaccinated to some degree, that it is really going to be a huge frustration.

Mate, don't start with me.  We organised the work in December and they were due to start January.  They postponed due to lockdown and then emailed us couple of weeks back saying due to some of the relaxing of rules they could start beginning of March.

Sorry you're suffering through all this but we've done all this above board and if you think I'm giving you the names of the companies working in our street, you can forget it.

That’s a lie, I know many who have stopped and it’s law so they should not be doing non-essential work in people’s houses.

I think that under 12s are allowed to do non-contact training. My daughter is 5 and  is still attending a Saturday morning class. The classes are shorter, less coaches and is non contact training.

Probably 600,000 deaths if no lockdown.

 

Massive knock on effects from that. Possibly a destroyed NHS and 20 years of court action for negligence that would dwarf any costs, which there are of course. 

Izzat a reliable estimate? Like, from Neil Ferguson or other WCS modellers trumpeted by the nanny'll-scare-you-at-night Beeb and the likes?

yes so at the start where someone has to come up with something and given the nature of the situation maybe going on the side of caution it seems like a debatable but not inappropriate starting point

 

im surprised anyone would be using it now though

 

gt’s calculation probably a good few versions on from it

My reading of that statement is that most trades can continue to operate indoors under Level 4 restrictions.

 

Replacing a boiler or having a room repainted or a carpet fitted could reasonably be argued to be essential for the upkeep and maintenance of a property.

 

In fact, I had a new suite delivered in January that required to be assembled in situ. The only expectation on myself was that I stayed outside the room while the sofa and chairs were assembled.

Yes I agree FF but what about, kitchen refits, bathrooms, doors n floors?

Its the ordinary man that struggles to bypass or bend the rules. Plumbers and sparks are always essential.

I don't see any difference with kitchens, bathrooms etc. If it came to the crunch you just claim that doors were falling off or the shower or bath was leaking or faulty, carpet was worn and therefore a trip risk.  Whether you replace a carpet with a wood flooring would be your choice, but it is maintenance or upkeep all the same. 

 

I've seen double glazing installed in my own street within the last week or so.

As long as your local authority isn't put into L4 based on the current L4 restrictions.

 

Hopefully there is some relaxing on the L4 restrictions but more importantly your LA isn't placed in L4 either.
